The Malware Museum

Mikko Hypponen

The Malware Museum is a collection of malware programs, usually viruses, that were distributed in the 1980s and 1990s on home computers. Once they infected a system, they would sometimes show animation or messages that you had been infected.

Through the use of emulations, and additionally removing any destructive routines within the viruses, this collection allows you to experience virus infection of decades ago with safety.

Malware Example: PPSCARE.COM *PPSCARE.COM - upon invocation, PingPongScare (tm) will become resident and clutter the screen with the characteristic "bouncing ball" of the PingPong boot block infector. Computing can continue while PingPongScare is in effect.
